Our customer, DOW Chemical Ibérica, needed a temporary substitution of steam. Together with our European Steam Experts, the team in Spain designed and installed a Total Solution capable of providing the requested volume of steam.
You probably know what a steam boiler is, but you might be less familiar with the other things on the list above. Here is a brief explanation of some of the less obvious equipment. A “Superheater” converts saturated or wet steam into superheated or dry steam. Superheated steam is used in, for example, steam turbines or steam engines but also when steam network is large. The Steam Dryer is necessary to dry limit condensation as much as possible, to increase the efficiency of the Superheater. Last but not least, the Silencer, admittedly, is a little obvious. It enables us to commission the installation without perturbation on the customer steam network and reduces significantly the noise level of venting steam.
Although eventually the boilers were not started up, we met our costumer´s expectations on designing the requested unit to fulfill their needs, as well as supply and install the Total Solution in record time. A successful collaboration!
Thank you all for the great support, work, and service we had from Atlas Copco in this difficult situation for Dow. You really met our needs and time targets even though in the end we did not have to start the boilers. I have no doubt that Atlas will be on our list for future urgent needs.
